Listen to EPISODE 35: Strange Days –
Strange days we’re living in. Horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas make them stranger with Episode 35.
Horror author PD Cacek includes her latest installment of Repeat Performances, a series of ghosts stories set in various theaters around the country. Forge Theater once against features actors and theater staff who just refuse to move on from the stage. Forge Theater is nearby Phil and Fox in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. Narrated by British folksinger, David Walton.
The only sense I have of it—not even sure if the entity is male or female, although I lean toward male—is anger, a very cold, bone-numbing anger that can be felt even on the hottest days.

WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH
We’re celebrating Women in Horror Month by interviewing important women voices in the horror industry. On Episode 35, Fox interviews author Shannon Giglio, author of Short Bus Hero.
They talk about the challenges women horror authors have to face and she gives advice to new authors struggling to get their start. Fox shares a reading from her current work in progress, Strange as Angels. Oh! Shannon’s disappointed David Bowie hasn’t returned to tell us about the afterlife.
After a few uncomfortable moments, during which Flynn was sure he was either dying or losing his mind, the woman printed out a boarding pass and smiled as she laid it on the counter. “Just as I thought. The eyes and the heart never lie.” She smiled, fixing her eyes again on his chest. – From Strange as Angels, work in progress by Shannon Giglio.

FANGORIA gives MERCY 3.5 out 4 Skulls – “Dunham has channeled his many brushes with the other side into the exquisitely rendered, lyrical supernatural hospital thriller MERCY.“ READ FULL REVIEW HERE.
“Part medical horror, part supernatural suspense, MERCY is a hard-hitting fever dream of a novel. I enjoyed the hell out of it!” ~ Tim Waggoner, author of The Way of All Flesh and Eat The Night
“Pain and poetry flow in equal measure through these pages. Dunham’s prose strikes deep and hits all the right notes. MERCY is unforgettably vivid.” ~ David Dunwoody, author of Hell Walks and The 3 Egos
William Saint is dying of cancer. On most days death seems like a humane alternative to the treatment. Stricken with fever, William is rushed to Mercy—notorious as a place to send the sickest of the poor and uninsured to be forgotten—and finds the hospital in even worse condition than his previous visit. The grounds are unkempt, the foundation is cracking, and like the wild mushrooms sprouting from fissures of decay around it, something is growing inside the hospital. Something dark. It’s feeding on the sickness and sustaining itself on the staff, changing them. And now it wants Willie.
This was my death.
Life is an addiction.
Love is the only force that is real. Read . . . and understand what I saw. I put it in metaphor. You do not understand what you do not understand.
Author of Mercy – T. Fox Dunham
